How to disassemble Volume Controller 5040a?

Hi,
I want to disassemble the external Volume Control from my 5040a Subwoofer. Any suggestions?
If I unloosen the 2 screws, I can´t pull off the plate or the turning knob.
Reason is: I don´t have a clean volume fade.If I turn the controler from "minimum" position up to 1cm, I don´t get a signal. After that point the signal "jumps" in my face :o

regards

Hi,

The knob is fixed with glue so it's difficult to disassemble. It can be removed with some force but please be careful not to damage it.

Hi Ilkka,

thank you for your reply. Do I need to unloosen the 2 screws to remove the knob? Or just pull off the knob?
